    Don’t know much about heroin, but I can do math. 170 bags divided in to 5.1 grams (grams mind you, not ounces) is .03 grams per bag. A quick google search shows junkies in a government sponsored program (now there’s a bad idea!) consume about a half gram per day (.5), so 15 bags or so is one day’s shoot up. This dude was caught with 10 days worth of junk. The headline makes it sound like he runs an Afghanistan drug family.
